    S2 is applying EA. 5boys, can you send in the supplement before the common app? Just wondering.
  • 5boys5boys Registered User Posts: 1,775 Senior Member
    sunmachine.. Yes, you can submit your supplements before you submit the big CA.. you just click on supplement and then have them fill it out... it asks a few short questions, and then hit submit. He has already sent his test scores as well.

    me too! haven't submitted yet - working on essays! and waiting on SAT IIs so I won't be able to submit until approx Oct 20. you guys are so on top of it, I'm jealous! hey chance me please? :)
    from a central california public school, ~800 kids
    3.57 UW GPA, 3.93 W
    Grades: As and Bs split pretty evenly I think, with 5 (yikes) Cs sprinkled throughout my transcript. However, I am expecting to have really strong grades this year (with 3 APs)
    1 ap soph yr, 4 jr yr (BIG MISTAKE), 3 sr yr = 8 total
    my grade trend is: good fresh yr, a little worse soph year, worse jr yr, great sr yr
    5 on AP lit test, 4s on euro hist and us hist
    class rank: #32/15% with W GPA (as of the end of last year)
    SAT: 1800 (not going to submit this)
    ACT: 29 (definitely using this instead)
    SAT IIs: waiting on results
    moderately strong ECs - newspaper, special biotech program, Pony Club (non-school related), several clubs, founded harry potter club, internship at a winery/vineyard, tutored in English, weekend job at a horse training barn for several years. that's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    unrelated, but I'm also applying at a bunch of UCs, Willamette, Santa Clara U, USF, Occidental, Cal Poly, Chapman, Boulder, U of Portland, and maybe Bryn Mawr.

    PS I'm submitting EA to all my privates to (hopefully) increase my chances

    You seem to be average or slightly above for L&C's applicants! You should do fine.

    I just sent out my application tonight so will have my counselor send out the transcript, test scores, etc. tomorrow. Does anyone know how long it takes for L&C to get back with students who apply EA?
  • Lily2012Lily2012 Registered User Posts: 76 Junior Member
    don't they let you know by January something? sorry I'm not much help haaha.

    I am going up in November to look at it and am getting the entire package - interview, class observation, overnight, and tour! so excited! doing the same thing at willamette then too.

    D just submitted everything last night. Whew! Keeping our fingers crossed for 1) admission and 2) some good merit aid!

    I was notified via email of my EA acceptance on Friday, December 17th last year.
  • 5boys5boys Registered User Posts: 1,775 Senior Member
    My S submited his EA app this weekend and had an interview yesterday. The interviewer and my S got along great and they ended up talking for awhile.. he was the Dean of Admissions. He told my S he was a VERY strong applicant for admission.. he hopes this is a good sign.. he was excited to say the least. My S said he asked him a hard question.. he asked him, " what other schools are you applying to and what would you do if you got into all of them?".. my S had a great answer.. but he said it definitely stumped him for a minute.
